Finding solutions that work
Regulatory bodies, such as the College of Physicians and Surgeons or the Law Society of Ontario (LSO), have a mandate to protect the public interest while enhancing confidence in the professions they oversee. Standards developed by these organizations are industry specific and can vary widely.
We urge professionals facing inquiries from their regulators to seek the counsel of qualified and experienced administrative and regulatory law practitioners.
A complaint brought against a regulated professional can jeopardize future employment as well as financial goals. Professional misconduct complaints can lead to investigations and disciplinary hearings before an administrative tribunal. Clients in the education, healthcare and legal sectors, amongst others, trust the lawyers at Hum Law for quick and cost-effective resolution of administrative and regulatory matters.
We provide advice to regulators on issues including misconduct complaints and investigations, legislative and by-law amendments, policy and procedures development, and accreditation and registration. Hum Law has provided representation on appeals and judicial reviews.
We also work with professionals on investigation, disciplinary matters and registration requirements.
Hum Law advises on compliance with professional standards in a range of professions, drawing on a deep understanding of the public-interest mandate of regulators and the work of the licensed professions. Clients trust us to chart a clear and direct course to resolution that reflects the ethics of their profession.
We have proven success in maximizing outcomes for our clients, including by representing them before tribunals at LSO, the College of Physicians and Surgeons, College of Pharmacists, and the Ontario College of Teachers.
